Community Walk Leader Picnic & Biodiversity Walk


On Saturday 18th April Community Walk Leaders grabbed their walking shoes and came along to Divis and the Black Mountain for Walking In Your Communities thank you lunch and biodiversity walk.

This support event hosted by Walking In Your Community included a delicious picnic lunch of tasty treats and exploration of the nature and wildlife surrounding the new Ridge Trail walk with local expert Karl Hamilton. 

A fantastic day was had by all who experienced breathtaking panoramic views across the Belfast city skyline and beyond to the Mourne Moutains and Scrabbo Tower.

Walking In Your Communities Claire Overend remarked following the event, "Our Community Walk Leaders do a fantastic job with their groups throughout the year! This support event was a fantastic opportunity for us to say thank you to leaders personally and for Community Walk Leaders to network. A big thank you to all who came along and hopefully you learnt alot about the wonderful nature and wildlife Divis has!"
